Luanda – Angolan Government members, university teachers and students were on Monday in Luanda briefed on the process of reforms underway in Cuba, Angop learned.

This was during a lecture delivered by the speaker of the Cuban National Assembly, Ricardo de Alarcón de Quesada.

The lecture was part of the visit the Cuban official is paying to Angola since Thursday last week, in the framework of the effort to have bilateral cooperation reinforced.

On the occasion, Ricardo Alarcon said the process of updating of the Cuban economic model aims at increasing production, improving social justice and developing the country.

He said that rather than fully parting with the socialist economic model, the purpose is to follow the present trends of the world economy and globalisation.

Ricardo Alarcón said as well his country is seeking alternatives that make the foment of agriculture and industry feasible and equip private entrepreneurs with incentives that include bank credit.

According to him, a new fiscal law containing incentives for entrepreneurs will be passed soon.

The Cuban official stated as well that such gains like access to free health and education will be maintained, including incentives to the fight against corruption and social discipline.
